Mark West’s lighter styled wine focuses on pure fruit flavors from beginning to its refreshing finish. Playful fruit flavors of papaya and pears are complemented by subtle apple pie spice and vanilla from oak aging. Mark West Chardonnay tends to capture the attitude of its Central Coast origin, unpretentious, uncomplicated and at its best served with good friends, casual conversation, and lighter fare.
Mark West Chardonnay pairs well with grilled cheese and tomato soup, Cobb salad, grilled salmon, and apple pie à la mode.
